"These vines are 36 years old. Saturated, deep ruby-red. Perfumed, multidimensional aromas of plum, currant, tar, smoke and camphor. Sweet on entry, then superconcentrated and rich in the middle palate, with great chewy depth and compelling inner-mouth aromas. Like the San Lorenzo, this resounds in the mouth and on the very long finish. The sappy sweetness carries through on the aftertaste, ending with a suggestion of marzipan." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Nov/Dec 2002
Provenance: The Alba Cellar
Notes: 1 lightly scuffed capsule.
Lot Location: Orange County
